I can't believe I haven't blogged in a month. BAD, Sue! I have an exciting month planned for all of my friends in blog-land. I have a HUGE giveaway and I have lots of things to share with you that happened to me over the past month. I have guild retreat photos to show you, pictures from classes I took from pattern designers at a trade show, pictures from my niece's wedding celebration, pictures of knitting projects, a few new recipes, and pictures of several of my latest quilt and sewing projects. I even have a few free handbag patterns to share. I will be working on the wedding quilt for my son and future daughter in law, and in between I'll sprinkle the above mentioned photos. I'm resolving to be a better blogger this month!
I hate to post without a picture. The above photo is me holding up a quilt top I finished at our guild retreat (more about that to come....). The center is a panel from the Kingyo collection by Red Rooster. All of the fabrics are from Kingyo. It was super easy to put together since the borders were mostly from a border print. The only thing that was time consuming was the 5 flowers along the right and the 4 circles on the bottom that had to be fussy-cut and appliqued on.... and mitering the corners of the large borders. I really liked how it turned out. Now to quilt it!
I see that several new readers signed up to follow this blog during September. Welcome! I'm glad to have you reading along.
I'll post my October giveaway tomorrow--- and it's a good one!
